I was not a midwife when I had my first child and felt lost in the public system. I was, however, fortunate enough to find a private Midwife who provided continuity of care throughout my pregnancy and supported my wishes for a waterbirth at home. I felt so empowered and nurtured by this experience; to have the birth I wished for, to be a part of all decision making and having the comfort and security of really knowing my care provider. So, I become a Midwife!!
I feel passionately that women deserve choices when it comes to birthing their babies and should be empowered, supported and trusted through their pregnancy and birth journeys. Women’s intuition is so important but so frequently dismissed, I support women to tune back into their intuition and learn to trust it and their bodies to bring their babies earth side, using their own power as we have been doing for thousands of years. I feel extremely privileged to be a part of pregnancy & birth, it is a sacred journey for women and their families, one which transforms us and unleashes love, strength & resilience we never knew we had.
It took me 4 years of university, 2 more beautiful homebirths, a lot of renovations and just a little more study, but finally, here I am doing what I love best. My partner and I built the clinic from the ground up and my daughter designed and painted my business logo. My family and I have poured our heart’s into making the clinic a beautiful space so that everyone who walks in feels safe, comfortable, and welcomed.
Now I’ve been a midwife for 10+ years, working in both public and private sectors.
Currently, I am providing private continuity of care for antenatal and postnatal periods only, In addition to being employed at Latrobe Regional Hospital working in birth suite, antenatal and postnatal areas part-time. I am passionate about home birth and am slowly edging into this field as my children grow older and my flexibility increases, I can offer support as a second midwife for home birth with prior arrangement.
